au:^Pb of "revival melodies," etc. 


FOR, S^IjE by J. I>. ]NC^a-EE, 


Entered according to Act of Corfrress, in the year 1800, by J. W. Dadmitk, in the Clerk'r 
Office of the District Court of Massachusetts. 

P R E I^^ Jk. C E . 

A few words to the lovers of Sacred Music will explain why we have 
attempted the issue of another book of hymns and tunes, when so many 
are already in the market. And we will say in the outset, that we would 
not, if we could, depreciate the many excellent works, of this kind, now 
before the public. But every author has his own idea of what will meet 
the wants of the people, especially if he has had an opportunity of test- 
ing their taste. We think we have had a little experience in this direc- 
tion in the issue and sale of nearly a hundred thousand copies of " Revival 
Melodies," well distributed in all parts of the country. Some have said 
to us, give us a good variety of the best old tunes in connection with 
these melodies, and it will be just the thing for permanent use. This we 
have attempted, and the public must judge how well we have succeeded. 
Of course we could not be expected to pubUsh everything for the low 
price of twenty-Jive cents per copy ; but we have endeavored to make such 
a selection as will make every page valuable. The new pieces contained 
in this book, we believe, will be as popular as any we have yet pub- 

Some of the books heretofore published are too large for convenience, 
and consequently too costly ; others are too small to furnish a sufficient 
variety for permanent use. We have endeavored to keep between these 
extremes. An experience of over twenty years in conducting religious 
meetings, has convinced us that a mere hymn-hook is not sufficient for 
social meetings. "We must have the tunes as well as the hymns, then the 
singing will not be confined to a very few tunes, — as is always the case 
when nothing but hymn-books are used, — but we shall have a variety, 
for it is a fact that in every congregation you will find more or less who 
can sing almost any plain music at sight. And then again, you can de- 
tain the congregation a few minutes after meeting, and, with book in 
hand, practice some new pieces. There is nothing that will draw in the 
unconverted like good singing. We have tried it, and therefore speak. 
Those who have no musical ear, and but little music in tkeir hearts, may 
think we are giving too much prominence to this subject, but the history 
of singing in the union, noon-day and other social meetings, for the last 
two years, will correct any such impression. 

" Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom ; teaching 
and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 
singing with grace in your hearts unto the Lord."

1 . Watchman, tell me, does the morning Of fair Zion's glory dawn ? ) 
Have the signs that mark its coming, Yet upon my pathway shone ? J 
Spm-n the mibelief that bound thee. Morning dawns ! arise, a- rise ! 




D. C. 





Pilgrim, yes ; arise, look round thee ! Light is breaking in the skies ; 

2 See the glorious light ascending, 

Of the grand Sabbatic year ! 
Hark ! the voices loud proclaiming 

The Messiah's kingdom near. 
Watchman, yes ; I see just yonder, 

Canaan's glorious heights arise ; 
Salem, too, appears in grandeur, 

Towering 'neath her sunlit skies. 

3 Pilgrim, in that golden city, 

Seated on his jasper throne, 
Zion's King, arrayed in beauty, 

Reigna in peace from zone to zone ; 
There, on verdant hills and mountains, 

Where the golden sunbeams play, 
Purling streams and crystal fountains 

Sparkle in th' eternal day. 

4 Pilgrim, see ! the light is beaming, 

Brighter still upon thy way ; 
Signs through all the earth are gleaming, 

Omens of thy coming day. 
When the jubilee trumpet sounding. 

Shall awake, from earth and sea. 
All the saints of God now sleeping. 

Clad in immortality. 
6 Watchman, lo ! the land we're nearing. 

With its vernal fruits and flowers. 
On just yonder ; O how cheering ! 

Bloom forever Eden's bowers. 
Hark I the choral strains there ringing, 

Wafted on the balmy air ; 
See the millions ; hear them singing, 

Soon the pilgrims will be there.

2 A few more days or years at most, 

My troubles will be o'er ; 
I hope to joiu the heavenly host, 

On Canaan's happy shore. 
My raptured soul shall drink and feast 

In love's unbounded sea ; 
The glorious hope of endless rest 

Is ravishing to me. 

3 come, my Saviour, come away, 

And bear me to the sky ; 
Nor let thy chariot wheels delay ; 

Make haste, and bring it nigh : 
I long to see thy glorious face, 

And in thy image shine ; 
To triumph in victorious grace, 

And be forever thine. 

4 Then will I tune my harp of gold 

To my eternal King, 
Through ages that can ne'er be told, 

I'll make thy praises ring. 
All hail, eternal Son of God, 

Who died on Calvary ! 
Who bought me with his precious blood, 

From endless misery. 

3 A 

1 IIow happy every child of grace. 

Who knows his sins forgiven ; 
This earth, he cries, is not my place ; 

I seek my place in heaven ; 
A country far from mortal sight, 

Yet O, by faith I see 
The Land of rest, the saint's delight, 

The heaven prepared for me. 

2 0, what a blessed hope is ours, 

While here on earth we stay, 
We more than taste the heavenly powers. 

And antedate that day ; 
We feel the resurrection near, 

Our life in Christ concealed, 
And with his glorious presence here 

Our earthen vessels filled. 

3 0, would he more of heaven bestow, 

And let the vessels break ; 
And let our ransomed spirits go 

To grasp the God we seek ; 
In rapturous awe on him to gaze, 

Who bought the sight for me, 
And shout and wonder at his grace 

To all eternity. 

4: The prospect joyous. 

1 And let this feeble body fail, 

And let it faint or die ; 
My soul shall quit the mournful vale, 

And soar to worlds on high ; 
Shall join the disembodied saints, 

And find its long-sought rest ; 
That only bliss for which it pants, 

In the Redeemer's breast. 

2 In hope of that immortal crown 

I now the cross sustain ; 
And gladly wander up and down, 

And smile at toil and pain ; 
I suffer on my threescore years, 

Till my Deliverer come ; 
And wipe away his servant's tears. 

And take his exile home. 

3 0, what hath Jesus bought for me ! 

Before my ravished eyes. 
Rivers of life divine I see. 

And trees of Paradise ! 
I see a world of spirits bright, 

Who taste the pleasures there ! 
They all are robed in spotless whit<^ 

And conquering palms they bear. 

4 0, what are all my sufferings here, 

If, Lord, thou count me meet, 
With that enraptured host f appear, 

And worship at thy feet ! 
Give joy or grief, give ease or pain, 

Take life or friends away ; 
But let me find them all again, 

In that eternal day.

Conclusion of hymn 

2 Courage ! courage ! she's in safety I 

See again her buoyant form, 
By his gracious hand uplifted. 

Who controls the raging storm. 
With her precious cargo freighted. 

Now the life-boat nears the shore ; 
Parents, brethren, friends, embracing, 

Those they thought to see no more. 

3 Christian ! pause, and deeply ponder ; 

Is there nothing you can do ? 
The sinking ship, the storm, the life-boat, 
Have they not a voice for you ? 

on opposite page. 

There's a storm, a fearful tempest — 

Souls are sinking in despair ; 
There's a shore of blessed refuge, 

Try, try to guide them there. 

: 0, remember Him who saved you, 
Whose right hand deliverance wrought, 
Who, from depths of guilt and anguish, 

You to peace and safety brought ; 
'Tis His voice who cheers you onward ; 

" He that winneth souls is wise ;" 
Launch the Gospel's blessed life-boat ; 

Venture all to win the prize.

No, there's a cross for every one, And there's a cross for me. 
But now they taste unmingled love, And joy without a tear. 


And then go home my crown to wear. For there's a crown for me. 




Q Remember me. 

1 Thou from whom all goodness flows, 

I lift my soul to thee ; 
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes, 
Lord, remember me. 

2 If, for thy sake, upon my name 

Reproach and shame shall be, 
I'll hail reproach, and welcome shame ; 
Lord, remember me. 

3 When worn with pain, disease, and grief, 

This feeble body see ; 
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief; 

Lord, remember me. 

4 "When, in the solemn hour of death, 

1 wait thy just decree, 

Be this the prayer of my last breath, — 
Lord, remember me. 

5 And when before thy throne I stand, 

And lift my soul to thee, 
Then, with the saints at thy right hand, 
Lord, remember me. 

10 Walk in the light. 

1 Walk in the light ! so shalt thou know 

That fellowship of love, 
His Spirit only can bestow 
Who reigns in light above. 

2 Walk in the light ! and thou shalt find 

Thy heart made truly His 
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined, 
In whom no darkness is. 

3 Walk in the light ! and thou shalt own 

Thy darkness passed away, 
Because that light hath on thee shone 
In which is perfect day. 

4 Walk in the light ! and e'en the tomb 

No fearful shade shall wear ; 
Glory shall chase away its gloom, 
For Christ hath conquered there. 

5 Walk in the light ! thy path shall be 

Peaceful, serene, and bright : 
For God, by grace, shall dwell in the«| 
And God himself is light.

1. Majestic sweetness sits enthroned Upon the Saviour's brow ; His head with 


radiant glories crowned, His lips with grace o'erflow, His lips with grace o'erflow 


2.4: Indebtedness to Christ. 

2 No mortal can with him compare 

Among the .sons of men ; 
Faii-er is he than all the fair 
Who fill the heavenly ti-ain. 

3 He saw me plunged in deep distress, 

And flew to my relief ; 
Tor me he bore the sliameful cross, 
And carried all my grief. 

4 To him I owe my life and breath, 

And all the joys I have ; 
He makes me triumph over death, 
And saves me from the grave. 

5 Since from his bounty I receive 

Such proofs of love divine. 
Had I a thousand hearts to give, 
Lord, they should all be thine, 

X5 The Wanderer's Return.

A calm and heavenly frame ; 

A light to shine upon the road 
That leads me to the Lamb. 

2 Where is the blessedness I knew 

When first I saw the Lord ? 
Where is the soul-refreshing view 
Of Jesus and his word ? 

3 What peaceful hours I once enjoyed, 

How sweet their memory still ! 
But they have left an aching void 
The world can never fill. 

4 Return, holy Dove,-return, 

Sweet messenger of rest : 
I hate the sins that made thee mourn, 
And drove thee from my breast. 

5 The dearest idol I have known, 

Whate'er that idol be. 
Help me to tear it from thy throne, 
And worship only thee. 

6 So shall my walk be close with God, 

Calm and serene my frame ; 
So purer light shall mark the road 
That leads me to the Lamb.

That bids our sorrows cease ; 
'Tis music in the sinner's ears, 
'Tis life, and health, and peace.

He sets the prisoner free ; 
His blood can mak'j the foulest clean ; 
His blood availec* for me.

New life the dead receive ;

To die no more, to die no more, I'm going home to die no more. 




2 My Father's house is built on high, 
Far, far above the starry sky ; 
When from this earthly prison free, 
That heavenly mansion mine shall be. 

3 While here, a stranger far from home, 
Affliction's wavea may round me foam ; 
And, though like Lazarus, sick and poor, 
My heavenly mansion is secure. 

4 ]Let others seek a home below, 
Which flames devour, or waves o'erflow ; 
Be mine a happier lot to own 

A heavenly mansion near the throne. 

5 Then fail this earth, let stars decline. 
And sun and moon refuse to shine. 

All nature sink and cease to be. 
That heavenly mansion stands for me.

Tone, " Northfield." 

1 Awake, my soul ! stretch every nerve, 

And press with vigor on ; 
A heavenly race demands thy zeal, 
And an immortal crown. 

2 'Tis God's all-animating voice 

That calls thee from on high ; 
'Tis he whose hand presents the prize 
To thine aspiring eye. 

3 A cloud of witnesses around 

Hold thee in full survey ; 

Forget the steps already trod, 

And onward urge thy way. 

4 Blest Saviour, introduced by thee, 

Our race have we begun ; 
And, crowned with victory, at thy fee* 
We'll lay our trophies down.

Protect me through my life's short day ; 
In all my acts may wisdom guide, 

And keep me, Saviour, near thy side.

Save me from sin and Satan's power ; 
Tear every idol from thy throne. 
And reign, my Saviour, reign alone.

2 Come, sinners, see him lifted up. 

On the cross, on the cross. 
He drinks for you the bitter cup. 

On the cross, on the cross. 
To heaven he turns his languid eyes, 
" 'lis finished," now the conqueror cries, 
Then bows his sacred head and dies, 

On the cross, on the cross. 

3 'Tis done ! the mighty deed is done, 

On the cross, on the cross. 
The battle fought, the victory won, 

On the cross, on the cross. 
The rocks do rend, the mountains quake, 
While Jesus doth atonement make, 
While Jesus suff^s for your sake. 

On the cros* on the cross.

4 Where'er I go I'll tell the story, 

Of the cross, of the cross. 
In nothing else my soul shall glory, 

Save the cross, save the cross. 
Yes, this my constant theme shall be, 
Through time, and in eternity. 
That Jesus suffered death for me. 

On the cross, on the cross. 

5 Let every mourner come and cling 

To the cro«s, to the cross. 
Let every Christian come and sing, 

Kound the cross, round the cross.

Proclaim the triumphs of the Lamb, 

On the cross, on the cross.

2 how blessed is this station ! 

Low before the cross I'll lie, 
"While I see divine compassion 

Pleading in the victim's eye ; 
Here I'll sit, forever viewing, 

Mercy streaming in his blood ; 
Trecious drops, my soul bedewing. 

Plead and claim my peace with God. 

3 Here it is I find my heaven, 

While upon the Lamb I gaze ; 
Here I see my sins forgiven, 

Lost in wonder, love, and praise. 
May I still enjoy this feeling, 

In all need to Jesus go ; 
Prove each day his blood more healing. 

And Himself more deeply know. 

Q ^ Hymn for Seamen. 
1 Tossed upon life's raging billow, 
Sweet it is, Lord, to know 
Thou didst press a sailor's pillow, 

And canst feel a sailor's woe. 
Never slumbering, never sleeping. 

Though the night be dark and drear, 
Thou *he faithful watch art keeping, 
*'A11, all's well," thy constant cheer. 

1 And though loud the wind is howling. 

Fierce though flash the lightniugs red, 
Darkly though the storm-cloud's scowling 
0"er the sailor's anxious head ; 
Thou canst calm the raging ocean, 

All its noise and tumult still ; 
Hush the tempest's wild commotion, 
At the bidding of Thy will. 

S Thus my heart the hope will cherish, 
While to Thee I lift my eye ; 
Thou wilt save me ere I perish ; 

Thou wilt hear the sailor's cry ; 
And though mast and sail be riven, 

J>ife's short voyage will soon be o'er ; 
Safely moored in heaven's wide haven, 
Storm and tempest vex no more. 


Q0 Vaiiity of earthly treasures. 

1 Vain are all terrestrial pleasures ; 

Mixed with dross the purest gold ; 
Seek we then for heavenly treasures,— 

Treasures never waxing old. 
Let our best affections centre 

On the things around the throne : 
There no thief can ever enter ; 

Moth and rust are there unknown. 

2 Earthly joys no longer please us : 

Here would we renounce them all ; 
Seek our only rest in Jesus, 

Him our Lord and Master call. 
Faith, our languid spirits cheering, 

Points to brighter worlds above ; 
Bids us look for his appearing ; 

Bids us triumph in his love. 

3 May our light be always burning, 

And our loins be girded round, 
Waiting for our Lord's returning, — 

Longing for the welcome sound. 
Thus the Christian life adorning, 

Never need we be afraid. 
Should he come at night or morning, 

Early dawn, or evening shade. 

QT" ^^'^ desire of all nations. 

1 Come, thou long-expected Jesus, 

Born to set thy people free ; 
From our sins and fears release us, 

Let us find our rest in thee. 
Israel's Strength and Consolation, 

Hope of all the saints thou art ; 
Dear Desire of every nation, 

Joy of every longing heart. 

2 Born, thy people to deliver ; 

Born a child — and yet a King ; 
Born to reign in us forever, 

Now thy precious kingdom bringf. 
By thine own eternal Spirit, 

Rule in all our hearts alone ; 
By thine all-sufficient merit. 

Raise us to thy glorious throne.

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see 

That fountain in his day ; 
And there may I, though vile as he, 
Wash all my sins away. 

3 Thou dying Lamb I thy precious blood 

Shall never lose its power, 
Till all the ransomed Church of God 
Are saved, to sin no more. 

4 E'er since, by faith, I saw the stream 

Thy flowing wounds supply. 
Redeeming love has been my theme. 
And shall be, till I die. 

5 Then in a nobler, sweeter song, 

I'D sing thy power to save, 
When this poor lisping, stamm'ring tongue 
Lies silent in the g.-uve. 

3 O Salvation hy Christ. 

1 Salvation ! 0, the joyful sound ! 

'Tis pleasure to our ears ; 
A sovereign balm for every wound, 
A cordial for our fears. 

2 Buried in sorrow and in sin, 

At hell's dark door we l«y ; 
But we arise by grace divine. 
To see a heavenly day. 

3 Salvation ! let the echo fly 

The spacious earth around, 

While all the armies of the sky 

Conspire to raise the sound. 

4 Salvation .' 0, thou bleeding Lamb, 

To thee the praise belongs ; 
Salvation shall inspire our hearts, 
And dwell upon our tongues.

Is this vile world a friend to grace,

Supported by thy word.

Shall conquer, though they die ;

And all thy armies shine 
In robes of victory through the skies, 
The glory shall be thine.

That fellowship of love. 
His Spirit only can bestow 
Who reigns in light above. 

2 Walk in the light ! and thou shalt find 

Thy heart made truly his 
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined, 
In whom no darkness is. 

3 Walk in the light ! and thou shalt own 

Thy darkness passed away. 
Because that Light hath on thee shone 
In which is perfect day. 

4 Walk in the light ! and e'en the tomb 

No fearful shade shall wear ; 
Glory shall chase away its gloom. 
For Christ hath conquered there. 

5 Walk in the light • thy path shall be 

Peaceful, serene, and bright : 
For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee, 
And God himself is light.

4:9 The onhj Refuge. 

1 Jesus, lover of my soul, 

Let me to thy bosom fly, 
While the nearer waters roll, 

While the tempest still is high ; 
Hide me, my Saviour, hide, 

Till the storm of life is past ; 
Safe into the haven guide, 

receive my soul at 

2 Other refuge have I none ; 

Hangs my helpless soul on thee : 
Leave, leave me not alone ; 

Still support and comfort me : 
All my trust on thee is stayed ; 

All my help from thee I bring ; 
Cover my defenceless head 

With the shadow of thy wing. 

3 Thou, Christ, art all I want : 

More than all in thee I find : 
Kaise the fallen, cheer the faint. 

Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Just and holy is thy name ; 

1 am all unrighteousness ; 
False, and full of sin I am ; 

Thou art full of truth and grace. 

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, 

Grace to cover all my sin : 
Let the healing stream.s abound , 

Make and keep me pure within. 
Thou of life the fountain art ; 

Freely let me take of thee : 
Spring thou up within my heart ; 

Rise to all eternity. 

50 The cry of the heathen. 
Tune, " Missionary Htmn." 

1 From Greenland's icy mountains, 

From India's coral strand ; 
Where Afric's sunny fountains 

Roll down their golden sand ; 
From many an ancient river, 

From many a palmy plain, 
They call us to deliver 

Their land from error's chain. 

2 What though the spicy breezes 

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle ; 
Though every prospect pleases, 

And only man is vile : 
In vain with lavish kindness 

The gifts of God are strown ; 
The heathen in his blindness 

Bows down to wood and stone. 

3 Shall we, whose souls are lighted 

With wisdom from on high, 
Shall we to men benighted 

The lamp of life deny ? 
Salvation ! salvation ! 

The joyful sound proclaim, 
Till earth's remotest nation 

Has learned Messiah's name. 

4 Waft, waft, ye winds, his story, 

And you, ye waters, roll, 
Till, like a sea of glory. 

It spreads from pole to pole : 
Till o'er our ransomed nature 

The Lamb for sinners slain, 
Picdeemer, King, Creator, 

In bliss returns to reign.

Across those skies no envious cloud shall roll, 
To dim the sunlight of the raptured soul. 

3 No night shall be in Heaven ! no sorrow's roign,

Stands and knocks at every door ;

To prepare you heavenly rest ; 
Listen, while he kindly calls you, 
Hear, and be forever blest. 

4 Now he has not come to judgment, 
To condemn your wretched race ; 
But to ransom ruined sinners. 
And display unbounded grace. 

5 Will you plunge in endless darknesg,

Or to realms of glorious brightness 
Rise, and with him ever reign? 

Conclusion of hymn on opposite page. 

4 No night shall be in Heaven — but endless noon ; 
No fast-declining sun, nor waning moon ; 

But there the Lamb shall yield perpetual light, 
'Mid pastures green, and waters ever bright. 

5 No night shall be in Heaven — no darkened room, 
No bed of death, nor silence of the tomb ; 

But breezes, ever fresh with love and truth, 
Shall brace the frame with an immortal j'outh. 

6 Ko night shall be in Heaven ! but night is here, 
The night of sorrow, and the night of fear ; 

I mourn the ills that now my steps attend. 
And shrink from others that may yet impend. 

7 No night shall be in Heaven ! 0, had I faith 
To rest in what the faithful Witness saith, 

That faith should make these hideous phantoms flee, 
And leave no night, henceforth, on earth, to me.

E'en sadder than before ; 
For memory wanders far, far back 

To happy scenes of yore. 
To golden, halcyon, dreaming days, 

When often at thy feet, 
I sat me down to weave fair flowers, 
In garlands fresh and sweet, 
8 And then around my brow, mother. 
Those garlands you would twine. 
And murmur, may life's fairest flowers 
My darling, e'er be thine.

To wait thy blessing given, 
And list the whispered words of love 

Borne from thy home in Heaven.

Till autumn's plaintive moan is heard • 
From summer's leafy shore.

Where friend holds fellowship with friend ; 
Though sundered far, by faith they meet. 
Around one common mercy-seat.

When tempted, desolate, dismayed ? 
Or how the hosts of hell defeat. 
Had suffering saints no mercy -seat ?

And sin and sense molest no more ; 

And heav'n comes down our souls to greet, 
While glory crowns the mercy-seat.

Thy spotless purity bestow : 
Touch me, and make the leper clean ;

And plunge me in the purple flood,

Does the hope inspire of a home in heaven. 

5 A home in heaven ! when our friends are fled 
To the cheerless gloom of the mouldering dead ; 
We wait in hope on the promise given ; 

We will meet up there in our home in heaven.

And the Spirit, joined with the bride, says "Come ! " 
Come, seek his face, and your sins forgiven, 
And rejoice in hope of your home in heaven.

1. I love to steal awMle away From every cumb'ring care, 






And spend the hours of setting day In humble, grateful prayer. 


2 I love in solitude to shed 

The penitential tear, 
And all his promises to plead, 
Where none but God can hear. 

3 I love to think on mercies past, 

And future good implore, — 
And all my cares and sorrows cast 
On Him whom I adore. 

4 I love by faith to take a view 

Of brighter scenes in heaven ; 
The prospect doth my strength renew, 
While here by tempests driven. 

5 Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er. 

May its departing ray 
Be calm as this impressive hour. 
And lead to endless day.

What endless glory shines ; 
Forever be thy Name adored 

For these celestial lines. 


2 Here may the wretched sons of want 

Exhaustless riches find ; 
Riches above what earth can grant, 
And lasting as the mind. 

3 Here the fair tree of knowledge grows, 

And yields a free repast ; 
Sublimer sweets than nature knows 
Invite the longing taste. 

4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice 

Spreads heavenly peace around ; 
And life, and everlasting joys. 
Attend the blissful sound.

Our ever dear delight ; 
And still new beauties may we see, 
And still increasing light.

Be thou forever near ; 
Teach us to love thy sacred word, 
And view the Saviour there.

1. I see, I see, rapturous sight, I see a glorious land of light; 

A heavenly city, bright and fair. And all the ransomed ones are there. 


2 Bright "jasper -walls" around it stand, 
Reared by the gentle Father's hand ; 
And " golden portals " open wide, 
To welcome Jesus' ready bride. 

8 Fair skies o'erhang that happy clime, 
And noontide glory e'er doth shine 
Resplendent from th' Eternal's throne, 
To light the Christian's final home. 

4 Fair white-robed throngs roam o'er those 
And in ecstatic, joyful strains, 
They chant their richest, sweetest lays, 
To swell the great Redeemer's praise. 

tt And now before the burning throne, 
On wings of light they joyful come ; 
While heaven's banner o'er them waves, 
Atd on it written, "Jesus saves." 

6 And now— ah ! never can I tell. 

How rich the anthems that they swell ; 
Or how the heavenly arches ring, 
With music cherub voices ring. 

7 Ah ! now amid the shining ones, 
Who raise those rich, immortal tones, 
I see for whom a Saviour's blood 
Opened the way to Heaven and God. 

8 And as the sweet, seraphic lyre, 
And angel voices rise still higher, 
Far richer, higher notes they raise. 
Whom our blest Jesus died to save. 

9 For, though they see the Father's face, 
And sing the riches of his grace, 
Yet, ne'er did angel spirits know 
The joys of souls redeemed from woe.

2 Lo ! such the child whose early feet 

The paths of peace have trod ; 
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet, 
Is upward drawn to God. 

3 By cool Siloam's shady rill 

The lily must decay ; 
The rose that blooms beneath the hill 
Must shortly fade away. 

4 And soon, too soon the wintry hour 

Of man's maturer age 
Will shake the soul with sorrow's power. 
And stormy passion's rage. 

6 Thou who givest life and breath, 
We seek thy grace alone, 
In childhood, manhood, age, and death, 
To keep us still thine own. 

3 6 Death gain to the faithful. 

1 Why should our tears in sorrow flow 

When God recalls his own, 
And bids them leave a world of wo, 
For an immortal crown ? 

2 Is not e'en death a gain to those 

Whose life to God was given ? 
Gladly to earth their eyes they close, 
To open them in heaven. 

3 Their toils are past, their work is done, 

And they are fully blest ; 
They fbught the fight, the victory won, 
And entered into rest. 

4 Then let our sorrows cease to flow ; 

God has recalled his own ; 
But let our hearts, in every wo, 
Still say,— Thy will be done.

And he who has but tears to give.

Which, like the plants that throw 
Their fragrance from the wounded part, 
Breathes sweetness out of wo.

As darkness shows us worlds of light, 
We never saw by day.

And drove thee from my breast.

Whate'er that idol be, 
Help me to tear it from thy throne, 

And worship only thee. 
So shall my walk be close Avith God, 

Calm and serene my frame ; 
So purer light shall mark the road 
That leads me to the Lamb.

1 . Sinner go, will you go To the highlands of heaven ? 
And the leaves of the bowers In the breezes are flitting. 


AVhere the storms never blow, And the long summer's given ; 


Where the bright blooming flowers Are their o - dors e - mitting, 




2 Where the saints robed in white, 

Cleansed in life's flowing fountain, 
Shining beauteous and bright, 

Shall inhabit the mountain. 
Where no sin nor dismay. 

Neither trouble nor sorrow, 
Shall be felt for a day, 

Nor be feared for the morrow. 

3 He's prepared thee a home ; 

Sinner, canst thou believe it ? 
And invites thee to come ; 

Sinner, wilt thou receive ifc? 
come, sinner, come, 

For the tide is receding. 
And the Saviour will soon 

And forever cease pleading.

Oncemore, my voice, thy tribute pay To Him that rules the skies.

1 Once more, my soul, the rising day 

Salutes thy waking eyes ; 
Once more, my voice, thy tribute pay 
To Ilim that rules the skies. 

2 Night unto night his name repeats, 

The day renews the sound ; 
Wide as the heavens on which he sits, 
To turn the seasons round. 

3 'Tis he supports my mortal frame ; 

My tongue shall speak his praise ; 
My sins might rouse his wrath to fiame, 
But yet his wrath delays. 

4 God, let all my hours be thiuo, 

Whilst I enjoy the light ; 
Then shall my sun in smiles decline, 
And bring a peaceful night. 

]^0 3 Instructing the young. 

1 Delightful work ! young souls to win, 

And turn the rising race 
From the deceitful paths of sin, 
To seek redeeming grace. 

2 Children our kind protection claim ; 

And God will well approve 
When infants learn to lisp his name, 
And their Redeemer love. 

3 Be ours the bliss, in wisdom's way 

To guide untutored youth, 
And show the mind which went astray 
The Way, the Life, the Truth. 

4 Almighty God, thine infiuonce shed, 

To aid this blest design : 
The honors of thy name be spread, 
And all the glory thine.

Robed in spotless white,

Who left me sad and loue,

Receive my soul ! he cries ; 
See where he bows his sacred head ; 
He bows his head and dies.

And in full glory shine ; [chain,

And did my Sov'reign die ?

For such a worm as I ? 

2 Was it for crimes that I have done, 

He groaned upon the tree ? 
Amazing pity ! grace unknown ! 
And love beyond degree J 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, 

And shut his glories in, 
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died, 
For man, the creature's sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face 

While his dear cross appears ; 

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 

And melt mine oj-es to tears. 

5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay 

The debt of love I owe : 
Here, Lord, I give myself awaj', — 
'Tis all that I can do.

And when the morn the light reveals,

Pray tell us all straightway ; 

The New Jerusalem's the Tort, 

The realms of endless day ;

Our anchor Eloomixg Hope, 
The love of God the main-topsail, 
And Faith our cable rope. 

4 Heave out your boat ! I, too, will go, 
If you can find me room ; 
There's room for you, for iiU the world- 
Make no delay to come.

Your bark will overwhelm ?

We do not fear, for Christ is here, 
And always at the helm. 

6 We've looked astern thro' many a storm ; 

The Lord has brought us through ; 
We're looking now ahead, — and lo ! 
The land appears in view. 

7 The sun is up, the clouds are gone, 

The heavens above are clear ; 

A City bright appears in sight, 

We'll soon be round the pier. 

8 And when we all are landed safe 

On that Celestial Plain, 
Our song shall be " Worthy the Lamb 
For rebel sinners slain ! "

1 . O that my load of sin were gone ; O that I could at last sub - mit 


At Jesus' feet to lay it down — To lay my soul at Jesus' feet. 

I I 


2 Rest for my soul I long to find : 
Saviour of all, if mine thou art. 
Give me thy meek and lowly mind, 
And stamp thine image on my heart. 

8 Break off the yoke of inbred sin, 
And fully set my spirit free ; 
I cannot rest till pure within, — 
Till I am wholly lost in thee. 

4 Fain would I learn of thee, my God ; 

Thy light and easy burden prove ; 
The cross all stained with hr.llowed blood, 
The labor of thy dying love. 

5 I would, but thou must give the power ; 

My heart from every sin release ; 
Bring near, bring near the jo\ful hour, 
And fill me with thy perfect peaoo. 

133 The divine Teacher. 

1 How sweetly flowed the gospel's sound 

From lips of gentleness and grace, 

While listening thousands gathered round, 

And joy and reverence filled the place. 

From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke, 
To heaven he led his followers' waj' ; 

Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke, 
Unveiling an immortal day. 

3 Come, wanderers, to my Father's home ; 

Come, all ye weary ones, and rest. 
Yes, sacred Teacher ! we will come, 
Obey, and be forever blest. 

4 Decay, then, tenements of dust ' 

Pillars of earthly pride, decay ! 
A nobler mansion waits the just, 
And Jesus has prepared the way.

Ask, and he turns j'our hell to heaven : 
Though sin and sorrow wound my soul, 
Jesus, thy balm will make it whole. 

3 To shame our sins he blushed in blood ; 
He closed his eyes to show us God : 

Let all the world fall down and know, 
That none but God such love can show.

I shed my tears and make my moan ; 
Where'er I am, where'er I move,

A thousand thoughts revolve ; 
Come, with your guilt and fear oppressed, 
And make this last resolve : —

Like mountains round me close ; 
I know his courts, I'll enter in. 
Whatever may oppose. 
8 Prostrate I'll lie before his throne, 
And there my guilt confess : 

I'll tell him I'm a wretch undone, 
Without his sovereign grace.

Perhaps will hear my prayer ; 
But, if I perish, I will pray, 
And peiish only there.

! For if I stay away, I know

The life of my delights. 
The glory of my brightest days, 
And comfort of my nights :

My dawning is begun ; 
Thou art my soul's bright morning star, 
And thou my rising sun.

With beams of sacred blis?, 

If Jesus shows his mercy mine, 
And whispers I am his.

At that transportiug word ; 
Run up with joy the shining way, 
To see and praise my Lord.

I'd' break through every foe ; 
The wings of love and arms of faith 
Would bear me conqueror through.

And soft, and silent as the shades,

1 Prayer is appointed to convey 
The blessings God designs to give# 

Long as they live should Christians pray ; 
They learn to pray when first they live. 

2 If pain afflict, or wrongs oppress ; 
If cares distract, or fears dismay ; 

If guilt deject ; if sin distress. 
In every case, still watch and pray. 

'Tis praj^er supports the soul that's weak : 
Tho' thought be broken, language lame, 

Pray, if thou canst or canst not speak ; 
But pray with faith in Jesus' name.

Fear not ; his merits must prevail ; 

Ask but in faith, it shall be done.

Thou art my Father and my God ; 

And I am thine by sacred ties, — 
Thy son, thy servant bought with blood.

For thee I long, to thee I look ; 

As travellers in thirsty lands 
Pant for the cooling water brook.

While I have breath to pray or praise : 

This work shall make my heart A'joice, 
And fill the remnant of my da^ j.

Three dreadful hours in pain ; 
And the solid rocks were rent 
Through creation's yast extent, 
When the Jews crucified the God-man.

1. Why should we start, and fear to die ? What timorous worms we mortals are ! 

Beath is the gate to endless joy, And yet we dread to en - ter there. 




Christ's presence in death. 

2 The pains, the groans, the dying strife, 
Fright our approaching souls away ; 

And we shrink back again to life, 
Fond of our prison and our clay. 

8 would my Lord his servant meet. 
My soul would stretch her wings in haste, 

Fly fearless through death's iron gate, 
Nor feel the terrors as she passed. 

4 Jesus can make a dying bed 
Feel soft as downy pillows are. 

While on his breast I lean my head, 
And breathe my life out sweetly thei'e. 

Conclusion of hjmn 

% While we seek supplies of grace, 

Through the dear Redeemer's name 

Show thy reconciling face — 
Take away our sin and shame : 

From our worldly cares set free. 
May we rest this day in thee. 

% Here we come thy name to praise ; 
Let us feel thy presence near ; 
May thy glory meet our eyes, 

on opposite page. 

WTiile we in thy house appear ; 
Here afford us, Lord, a taste 
Of our everlasting feast. 

4 May the gospel's joyful sound, 
Conquer sinners, comfort saints 

Make the fruits of grace abound, 
Bring relief from all complainta : 

Thus let all our Sabbaths prove, 
Till we join the church above.

2 But I have felt thee in my thoughts, 

Rebuking sin for me ; 
And, when my heart loyes God, I know 

The sweetness is from thee. 
And when, dear Saviour, I kneel down, 

Morning and night, to prayer, 
Something there is within my heart 

Which tells me thou art thvre. 

3 Yes ! when I pray, thou prayest too— 

Thy prayer is all for me ; 
But when I sleep, thou sleepest not, 

But watchest patiently. 
Dear Jesus, ever at my side, 

How loving must thou be. 
To leave thy home in heaven, to guard 

A little child like me.
